When planning an event, it can sometimes feel like you need to prepare an incredible amount of documents for attendees. Sure, this is partly true – but fear not! We’ve compiled a list of the Top 5 things we think you’ll need for your next big meeting or event, and best of all – we can take care of everything!
1. Pre-Conference Mailers
By sending out a pre-conference mailing, you can better gauge the amount of people who want to register for your next event. Think of it as an RSVP or “Save the Date” – and it never hurts to know this information as soon as possible. Another great reason for these are for informing your audience of sponsorship opportunities
2. Speaker Material and Handouts
Hand out speaker material and information as soon as your audience arrives so they know what to expect – material and time-wise. Things like daily itinerary and a program of speakers can be handed out prior to events starting, helping keep the event moving as smoothly as possible – while keeping everyone on the same page.
Follow-up your event or meeting with a questionnaire. What could you do better next time? This is viable information that can be utilized for the planning of future events, and to get a general idea of how attendees felt about your get-together.
3. Program agenda/ Event Schedules
When talking about event or meeting take-aways, presentation, oftentimes, is everything. The nicer the presentation of documents, the more referred to they will be – and the more your company will be remembered. Bound program books are a great option when looking into easy to use and eye-catching materials for your audience. Not just program books, but also bound event schedules – again making the event or meeting as memorable as possible, and something to which attendees often refer.
Proper signage is essential for any meeting or event. Easel board signage, directional boards and banners are all items that can sometimes be overlooked, but are greatly appreciated by those visiting for their first time. Clearly marked registration areas are also helpful as they point newcomers in the right direction, and once registered – can focus solely on the event and enjoy their time.
5. Attendee Materials
Once attendees are all signed in and settled, now it’s networking time. Things like ID Badges and Labels are crucial for even attendees as they clearly identify the attendee, and allows them to mingle with other like-minded folks. Not to be forgotten are dinner and drink tickets, as these items are crucial to helping folks kick back and become more comfortable during your meeting or event.
